Live (FREE) Q And A: Find Out If Your Student Athlete Is At Risk for Sudden Heart Failure

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

This is a guest post which PartnersHub has asked me to share with all of you. It is one with which I agree totally. We should all be aware of what can happen and why to our young student athletes. If you have or know a young student athlete I strongly suggest you attend to ask questions and get answers. Please feel free to share this post and spread the word. Click on the picture to find out more and to RSVP to this important event!



Top 5 risk factors for sudden heart failure in student athletes:

1. Family history of sudden death.
2. Fainting or family history of fainting.
3. Family history of arrhythmias or heart muscle disease.
4. Participation in sports (particularly sports that require a burst of
activity like basketball, hockey and football).
5. Athlete has gone through puberty (an athlete’s body is stronger at this point and has power during the burst of activity).

PartnersHub is working with the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center on a free live Q and A to help active families understand the risk factors of sudden heart failure in student athletes.

DID YOU KNOW?*
If defibrillation is administered within one minute of collapse, the survival rate for sudden heart failure goes up 90 percent. “Timing is key to survival. Waiting even 10 minutes to defibrillate drops the chances of survival to 10 percent,” says John Lynn Jefferies, MD.*


This issue has really hit home for all of us here at Partnershub recently and we want to do what we can to help shed light on this issue.

This is a free, live, on-line Q and A where you and your readers can ask questions in real time. It’s a chance to talk to knowledgeable and experienced doctors and get answers right on the spot.

The Q and A takes place April 9th from 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. EST with Jeffrey Towbin, MD and John Lynn Jefferies, MD.

A scary thought, but very important post!

Kim Croisant said...

It's so sad to hear of a young male losing his life while playing a sport. Lots of parents are simply ruling out football. I don't blame them. Great tips to remember here.

Sherryl Wilson said...

Sports are important but not worth risking the life of your child. I was not aware of a couple of the points made in your post. Thanks!

Nova Hedges said...

what a great reminder. this should be read by parents who have kids who joined sports and those parents who wish to let their kids join sports..it is better to know earlier..

HorsingAround InLA said...

Wow! Thanks for sharing this. Great tips and reminders. Scary thinking about student athletes being so young and having this happen, but they are still at risk too and it shouldn't be taken lightly!

Healy Harpster said...

Helpful information for all parents that have athlete students...

Stacee said...

Thanks for posting this. I have two sons that play sports and even though I've been given information by the athletic departments a their schools in the past it can never hurt to get a refresher and ask questions.

Rita VonCoupon said...

I passed this information onto some friends who were really interested in learning more.

Cyndie said...

Thanks for the valuable information. I will pass it along to my friends, too

Melinda Dunne said...

I think this is crucial information that should be shared. It seems I hear about more sudden deaths in teen athletes every year. It is very scary. Thanks for posting I am sharing this.

Kim Nagel said...

Wow, thanks for the awesome information. There is some scary stuff up there.

Jennifer Williams said...

This is such a scary thing, having a 16 year old who already has heart issues, this is something I worry about all the time. Thank you for teaching people about this.

Healy Harpster said...

I did forward this to my friends and they're so happy to have this kind of information. Thank's!

Mommy Liz said...

I have heard a lot of instances about sudden death of athletes. We would think that they are so healthy because of being active. I have a niece that plays basketball and I will have to forward this information to my sister in law. Thanks for sharing..

we can't decide on where will be our last days on earth. if it is our time to go no matter how young or old we are we have to go. however, learning about prevention of the illnesses isn't bad to do at all...so sorry of what happened

Jennifer Hughes said...

This topic continues to get coverage in the news. As we push our kids to perform, this issue is only going to show up even more. Thanks for sharing this free event.
